And that way was to believe in God. And it's your religious belief now that brought you to this point of view, that abortion cannot be allowed? It's my soul's belief.

There is a chink of light as you put it in everyone's soul. It depends on what the climate is. It depends on the basic decision, which should be done by the people that are involved with it. OK. So it is not an absolute. It is not an absolute no abortion under any circumstances? I stand by the teachings of the Catholic Church, Tim.

Soul of a New Machine ( $10, Amazon ) The Pulitzer-winning Soul of a New Machine, by Tracy Kidder, is considered by many to be one of the best non-fiction books about technology ever written. The 1981 novel follows the now-defunct Data General's efforts to build a next-generation minicomputer in the 1970s. The company's ability to overcome corporate, engineering and design challenges offers particularly insightful lessons for anybody interested in cross-team project management. Good to Great ( $19, Amazon ) The world is home to billions of companies, but only a few become true corporate powerhouses. What separates the merely good firms from the great? That's the question Jim C. Collins seeks to answer in his 2001 Good to Great . His ultimate answer: It's all about focusing on what you do best what economists might call comparative advantage.

For the last week I have been frustrated beyond belief. Why? I had no idea. Until I realized that the frustration I was feeling was due to NOT using my full potential in my life and work; to side-stepping my true capacity to create what only I can create. Let’s take a step back for a minute. Why do humans create? Buildings, families, businesses, communitiesWhy do we do it? Somewhere inside us we feel the pulse of creation, the creative force of the universe that is constantly evolving our reality. This the purest form of creation. But what typically happens is this: we try to create for gain. Our own personal agenda gets in the way and we find ourselves thinking about something other than the creation itself — what we’ll get out of it. What is soul work? It is your highest potential to create something tangible that shapes even the tiniest part of this world.

It was one of 18 finalists competing for the top honor at the Berlinale film festival this year. The ‘Golden Bearaward was won by Hungarian filmmaker Ildiko Enyedi for the filmTestrol es lelekrol” (On Body and Soul). Andoni’s filmGhost Huntinginvolves a powerful re-enactment of interrogation rooms and prison facilities in the infamousRussian Compoundprison run by Israel. According to journalist Rene Windangel, who spoke with Andoni about the creation of the film, the director began by confronting his own ghosts, having been imprisoned during the first intifada in the late 1980s. He then “turned to newspaper ads as he set out to find a group of former inmates able to work as set designers and craftsmen in recreating a prison on the film set. He also sought out ex-detainees willing to play the roles of prison wardens and prisoners. And so this group of people, who had themselves experienced imprisonment, began to meticulously build their own prison.

By 2050, Beijing will have planted 100 billion trees to its north, covering more than ten percent of the country’s landmass . This greenification program continues with a passion and love for nature. Beijing has identified and coddles, like rock stars, 40,000 urban trees that are over 100 years old, some dating back more than 1,000 years . Contrary to ceaseless propaganda in the West, Beijing and all of China’s cities have shown nonstop improvement in air quality, and Beijing is spending billions to keep bettering its environment. This has been going on since the 1990s, something I can personally attest to. Tetovo, Cairo, Kathmandu, Accra, Manila, Delhi, Beirut, Ulaanbaatar, Baku, Dhaka and Sao Paulo, among others, all had higher 2016 pollution indexes than China’s capital, but only Beijing gets the mainstream media black eye . Why? Because Beijing is the heart and soul of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and thus, is not a NATO doormat and puppet, an intolerable affront to Western capitalism.

It's not that we have any personal vendetta against coconuts. But the amount of effort you need to invest to break them open is a deal-breaker for many of us. If you're one such soul, you've just found a new friend in Abeesh Domanic. To say Domanic, 25, is good with coconuts would be an understatement. The resident of Southern Indian state of Kerala last week smashed all the world records when he cracked open 124 coconuts in less than one minute. With his bare hands. I know what you're thinking: If there's ever a John Wick adaption in India, we would want to see Domanic in it. But until that happens, all we have is the video of him and coconuts not getting along very well. Read more... More about Coconut , Guinness World Records , World Record , Record , and India

This affects the soul of our species. The more of these resources go into technology invention and use, the less they are available for all things not technology. Taking courtship, sex, and sexual reproduction as essential expressions of our biological, social, and cultural being, we can see how technology is increasingly defining them. We now have social media and dating apps, sex dolls/robots and other ‘toys,’ virtualization of sex through videos/Internet, hormone treatments, fertility drugs, in-vitro fertilization, pre-natal diagnostics, etc. To be clear, this isnt primarily about judging – though we should certainly form opinions about a development so crucial for our species. Primarily, this is about making ourselves aware of the dynamics we are unleashing. The trade-offs and unintended effects of modern means of communication and entertainment can also serve as an example: The benefits of Smartphones, the Internet, TVs and computers, or video games are obvious, which is why they are so alluring to us: ease of communication and information access, and their entertainment value.

It's been used as a cinema and bingo hall, but in 1981 it became a ballroom. The Ritz has been home to northern soul for years. But not for much longer. The Ritz hotel in London says it must change its name. The actual losing of the name, which is obviously very saddening for such an iconic building, is maybe not terminal that the ability to market a new name that nobody knows without any Internet connection whatsoever is just a massive task.

(Its worth remembering that it was ultimately an attack by Japan that got America into WWII and on the side of the Russians). But Russia needed America, with its shipments of steel and low-interest loans, far more than America needed Russia. Prior to Roosevelts presidency, officials in the State Department had insisted on a quid-pro-quo relationship. In return for recognizing the Soviet Union, they wanted Stalin to stop interfering in American affairs through its agents at Comintern, and take a softer stance to the Ukraine, where Stalin had orchestrated a famine. FDR could have easily demanded at least some of these concessions. Why didnt he? As they say in Russia: Another mans soul is darkness. Its impossible to know exactly what motivated Roosevelt, but its clear that his affinity for Stalin was more than just strategic.
